            Includes VSAN technology provides a cost-effective way to consolidate resources while providing high resiliency to potential fabric disruptions.

            Provides advanced traffic management capabilities integrated into the SN6010C simplify deployment and optimization of core-edge fabrics.

            NPIV and NPV technology provides independent management for each virtual machine and scaling of SANs without reaching Fibre Channel domain ID limits.

            High Availability Platform:
            Designed for mission-critical environments in which downtime is unacceptable.
            Offers non-disruptive software upgrades, dual hot-swappable power supplies (integrated fans for redundancy), hot-swappable fans, VSANs for fault isolation, PortChannels for ISL resiliency, and F-port trunking for resiliency on uplinks from a SN6010C operating in NPV mode.

            Simplified Management:
            Supports SAN plug-and-play capability as well as built-in storage network management, with all features available through a command-line interface (CLI) or the Cisco Data Center Network Manager for simplified storage management.

            Cisco Data Center Network Manager, available with the SN6010C, provides a centralized management tool with task-based wizards that simplifies management of a standalone switch or multiple switches and fabrics at no additional cost.

            Common platform architecture and the use of MDS 9000 NX-OS Software intelligent storage networking services across all MDS 9000 Family switches reduce ongoing operating expenses by providing a consistent set of provisioning, management, and diagnostic capabilities.
